Working Paper Discusses Universal Health Coverage

A post in the Medicus Mundi International Network (MMI) blog describes a working paper (.pdf) “drafted by an ad hoc working group of the MMI Network and adopted by the MMI Board on August 13,” which “presents key elements of the concept of [universal health care (UHC)] as promoted by the [WHO] and reflects them based on [the] ambition of Health for All such as stated in the MMI Network Policy.” The blog continues, “In the three sections (1) ‘What is in Universal Health Coverage?,’ (2) ‘Financing UHC,’ and (3) ‘UHC and health equity’ of the discussion paper we will directly refer to two helpful ‘questions and answers’ papers recently published by the [WHO] and add some of our reflections and open questions, hoping to contribute with this to the further discussion within and beyond our network” (8/13).
